‘Murdered babies won’t get justice’: Twitter reacts to Gosnell acquittals


Editor’s note: On Wednesday, the judge reinstated the murder charge concerning a baby who reportedly breathed for 20 minutes after delivery in Gosnell’s house of horrors. However, he dismissed another murder charge.

Unbelievable. Breaking, and heartbreaking, news out of the trial of Kermit Gosnell today. The judge heard acquittal motions: Reporters on-the-scene tweet the news.

Routine for defense to ask for acquittal on charges before actually beginning formal presentation of defense #KermitGosnell

#Gosnellacquittals came after def atty Jack McMahon argued that DA could not prove babies were alive when abort doc severed necks.

— jdmullane (@jdmullane) April 23, 2013

Severed their necks. But, hey, maybe they just came out “limp and dead” as President Obama would say. Sickening.

Those with a moral compass are infuriated and heartsick.

@jdmullane Then why the acquital on abuse of corpse, or were those different babies?Catch 22…

RIDICULOUS! RT @stevenertelt BREAKING: Kermit Gosnell Judge Drops Three Abortion-Infanticide Charges bit.ly/13W9WPD

They dropped 3 murders charges on #Gosnell because in a liberal world being born & having your spine snipped is a lifestyle choice.

@jdmullane Is this really happening?!

What the judge just did in the #Gosnell case is a good reason why I am no fan of electing judges.

— Marc T Grove (@mtgrove) April 23, 2013

So what are the limits to abortion if not snipping the necks of living babies after playing with them. #Gosnell

Unbelievable news on #Gosnell. Except it’s completely believable. #CultureofDeath

— Katie Kolodzy (@KatieKolodzy) April 23, 2013

That’s three murdered babies who will not be getting justice #Gosnell

— Amy Lutz (@amylutz4) April 23, 2013

May God have mercy on our souls. This is what the culture of death has come to: Babies, delivered and born, have their necks snipped. And the man who snuffed out their lives, according to all testimony, is not held responsible for their deaths.

There is one bit of encouraging news remaining:

Should be noted Gosnell, for now at least, still faces 5 counts of capital murder. Still faces death penalty.

— Sunny (@sunnyright) April 23, 2013

Per producer @wesbarrett remaining charges include:4 infant murder charges, 1 adult murder charge, infanticide #KermitGosnell

— Shannon Bream (@ShannonBream) April 23, 2013

Yes. And may justice be served in those cases.
